Congressman Ami Bera and Build Back Better

According to Huff post,   local Congressman Bera is part of the so called Moderate Caucus. this is the group opposing the Build Back Better bill and insisting upon passing the Infrastrurce bill.  It would be more accurate to call it the Corporate Caucus.

Here is my e mail to him. I encourage all to contact his office this week.

 Congressman Bera


I am greatly offended that you are listed as one of the Congresspeople holding back Build Back Better as reported in the Huff Post.

Rep. Ami Bera (D-Calif.), who is part of the more moderate New Democrat Coalition in the House, said he doesn’t think Democrats are messaging effectively around the “real problem” of inflation.

“I think that we’re bogged down in the process of trying to get really important legislation done,” Bera said. “I think we’ve got to acknowledge the people where they are right now and I don’t think we did a great job of that in Virginia,” Bera said, attributing Republican Glenn Youngkin’s win in the governor’s race to his acknowledgment of kitchen table issues like kids’ schooling and the rise in everyday expenses.”


So, the corporations got their bail out with the needed bi partisan Infrastructure bill. But, apparently you are not helping with Build Back Better.  The people of the district need and expect your support.  I am teaching an economics course and we are examining these bills.  We need a big  6.1 Trillion Build back better. It is already too small.  I will be bringing your position up for discussion tomorrow in my seminar.  I strongly urge you to support the bill.  The headlines about inflation are poorly informed.  Major economists agree. We need a big bill. Please represent your voters….
